That bidding war for Lebron was a painful mess. Thank God for Pusha T.
My homies at Los Angeles based retail players, Fly or Die Gallery, has released a shirt that strikes at the very core of this Lebron saga. Why is Lebron James profusely sweating Dwayne Wade’s private member? That and the fact that his personal claims about commitment and loyalty have punctuated his career and personal development. The manner in which Lebron strung along the city of Cleveland and its lone successful franchise was both unnecessary and devoutly disrespectful. That being said, they can’t beat the Lakers next year, maybe not even be the best team in the state of Florida. My prediction, this time next year we’ll be talking about how the Bulls got beat by the Lakers, barely.

All of you will see this commercial on television or YouTube before the holiday season has ended. However, many of you, not all of you (rap nerds be quiet), will never have recognized the rapper’s voice nor research its origin. Well, it’s Lupe Fiasco, the guy who got famous rapping about the onomatopoeia associated with skateboarding . And yes, he is getting caked out for this I’m sure. Anytime your name is in the same sentence with Christmas, Nike, Kobe Bryant and Lebron James, you’re definitely getting your stocking stuffed.
Professional athletes are often the envy of all hard working men. The notion of getting paid to play a game you love is a difficult pill to swallow. Across the board there are sure to be a plethora of justifiable examples of the ‘pay to play’ phenomenon. Some of these individuals are talented stars in their leagues, but lack the will to excel, some are plainly not working hard in the gym and collecting a check. However, for the chosen few, the superstars, sport is more than a game, it’s a divine decree. The two stars that come to mind when considering life beyond the game are Lebron and Michael. Simply put, Jordan is the most dominant player to have ever played sports in a professional setting. Lebron James is the closest thing we have to replicating the legendary entity.
When you’ve reached the level of global significance that these men have, it becomes society’s responsibility to document their tale. For Jordan, it was pretty much happening every other year during his NBA career, from Airtime to Michael Jordan: To The Max, Mike was commemorated. Peep a YouTube video thread of the Michael Jordan: To The Max in its entirety after the jump.
Lebron has been on a PR tour showcasing the premiere’s pf his documentary entitled More Than A Game. The documentary illustrates the story of Lebron’s precocious and mercurial rise to fame.
Lebron, never one to slip up when representing the urban youth, ensured that a relevant group of artists were featured on the soundtrack that accompanied this documentary. As is the case, the score is a fundamental part to any good documentary. Unfortunately, I find the soundtrack abhorrently lackluster, but enough NBA fans will appreciate the tracks, basketball fans have a predictably unique taste in hip hop.
